Craft Kit 02 - Edna Taylor

Hello and welcome to the blog today.
I have another project from the gorgeous Tonic Craft Kit #2 to share.

I combined the stamps and the dies to build this one using the beautiful card stock from the kit and had some fun with the Tim Holtz stamp platform at the same time.

I cut the ivory square to 5 1/2" and placed it on the platform using the magnets to hold it in position.
I placed the stamp where I wanted my image and inked with clear embossing ink. 
I then removed the card stock and covered the image with Nuvo Classic Gold detail embossing powder and embossed it using my heat gun.
I replaced the card stock into the platform turning 90 degrees and repeated the process.
I did this for all four corners to create the background to my card.
I die cut the layers using the High Gloss Harvest Gold card and the Chilli red.
The holly leaves were cut from Craft Perfect Speciality Emerald Hessian card stock.
Using the Harvest Gold and the Majestic gold I made two layers for the back ground piece and matted and layered them onto a 6 x 6" card base.
I added a little sentiment panel using the smaller of the plain dies and one of the greeting stamps from the set. 

The card was finished off with some Red Berry Crystal drops and a red bow from my stash.

Golden Tip
I only used one piece of gold mirror card stock for this card.
The largest layer was at the back was 5 7/8" square.
I die cut the largest plain die from the set from this piece. Matted and layered the plain card stock on top.
The next plain die was cut from the centre of the large die cut, matted and layered and so on until I had all the layers I needed.
It's one way to save on your precious stash and cut down the overall weight of the card.
Plus it feels really good to be so frugal. LOL 😉

I hope you are having as much fun as I have had with this kit.

Thank you for calling in today.
Have a good one!
